About GameChanger Girls
Esports Community for 10 to 15 year olds
We are creating a safe space for experimentation, design, innovation and sharing for a global community of girls. At the conclusion of the first pilot of this program, we asked the girls where they wanted to go with this program. They said, very loudly, that they wanted to play other games designed by girls, to get to know other girl game designers and players about the world and to feel part of a community.
GameChanger Girls (and Allies) is an esports programt for girls aged 10 -15 years old. We invite girls curious about game design and play (not esports necessary) to form clubs and join the community. The major difference in is this esports league to many others is that our teams design the games that we compete over..
This year we for Year 5&6 of schooling we will are also piloting a small number of teams in the Dell sponsored Girls Who Game program, where girls in teams will design an interactive program or game to meet a world challenge.
Whether Girls Who Game or GameChangers, the girls design interactive games and projects in Minecraft. For our esports program, we play each other’s games, then the girls all vote and the game or games deemed “most playable” become the focus of our tournament. In tournament mode we battle over the game or games chosen to identify our champions.
In 2022 we opened on International Women’s Day March 8th for Expressions of Interest.
We focus on 4 championship areas:
Community Engagement Award (ranked on engagement in our Flip community)
Game Design Award (voted by community playtesters)
Tournament Awards (battle it out in the game/s)
Grand Champion Award (points earned across all three aspects).
